$420.00 ex GST

This is the Ethiopian lunch basket: a round basket of thick sturdy leather, with a detachable lid held tight by a series of leather straps. It has become a desirable art piece, as the skill in making this piece is amazing.

The origin is a basket to transport food when travelling through the desert.

The basket was carried  over the shoulder using its long leather strap, and inside, you carried injera or other foods. It can also be used it at the dinner table as a way to serve  injera.

Some baskets are wider and flatter, some taller and rounder, and some have lids beautifully decorated with beads.
